Maps of Disappearing Palestine

You've seen the ubiquitous 4 part map at every anti-Israel event you've attended. Currently, billboard sized ads of these maps are in Vancouver transit system (There is an on-line poll here, asking if these ads should be removed. Please take a moment to vote while the poll is still open.) These maps will be coming to a bus stop near you. Know how to debunk them. Understand why they misrepresent history.

There are two versions that generally circulate. Liars need good memories.


Under partition,  Jerusalem and Bethlehem were designated as a Corpus Separandum . Most of the maps we've seen, including the ones currently in Vancouver neglect this information.  But that's only the start of the inaccuracies.

We've assembled a resource list for debunking the "Map that Lies" Click on the links for excellent summaries regarding why these maps are  inaccurate

From  Yaccov Lozowick    The Maps of Disappearing Palestine 

From the Elder of Ziyon       The map that lies, and one that doesn't

The Elder offers this as an alternative map: Israel's Land Concessions for Peace


 From Phillipe Assouline's Facebook page:  I acknowledge Anti-Semitism Poses as Palestinian Human Rights Activism 


A variation on the theme, via the Mike report


From BluestarPR:   Don't be fooled by lies About Palestine


From the Website 5 Minutes for Israel:  A course in map Reading Four maps & five, six, seven … lies

From The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, Pacific Region : Factual Analysis of the Vancouver Transit Ads

If you know of other resources, let us know and we'll add them to the list.

UPDATE:

The latest rebuttal  of the "maps of disappearing Palestine" is from StandWithUs, a non-profit founded in 2001 in response to the misinformation that surrounds the conflict in the Middle East.


UPDATE Oct. 9, 2013 StandWithUs comes through again, with this map profiling Jewish Loss of land from 1000 BCE through the present


UPDATE Dec 3, 2013
No Palestinian Arab state ever existed prior to the one currently being proposed by the international community.
Via: The Whole Story



Lets not forget the map they'll never show you: what Olmert offered the Palestinians, and what they turned down.
Via CAMERA : The Palestinians rejected peace three times

UPDATE Jan.6, 2014

Excellent analysis of the "Mendacious Maps of Palestinian Loss " by Shany Mot, a former director for foreign policy, Israeli National Security Council

He writes
Taken together, what we have is not four maps in a chronological series, but four different categories of territorial control presented with varying degrees of inaccuracy. Those categories are private property (“1946”), political control (“1967” and “2005”), and international partition plans (“1947”). They are presented in a fashion that is either tendentiously inaccurate (“2005”), essentially mendacious (“1947” and “1967”), or radically untrue (“1946”).

Shany Mor presents these 2  maps as a more historically accurate alternative:

UPDATE:

The revisions keep rolling in. This map details the emergence of a Palestinian state for the first time in history.

Just so you know. the maps of disappearing Palestine have been, er "disappearing" from Vancouver stations. So claim the anti-Israel forces. But I've never seen a photo, so it might just be a cry for attention.

When Holocaust heirs travelled to Poland and demanded the return of the property which had been stolen they had the full support of the entire world.

The property they demanded included a lot (schools, hospitals etc) that had been held communally, thereby setting another precedent viz all stolen property must be returned.

Load of rubbish, in the Torah it says Jews shouldnt have any land in which they call theyre country. After the second world war they didnt know what to do with the remaining jews so they decided to put all jews in palestine. And now after years of day light robbery and murder Israel has been created.

The Jews have lived here for over 3500 years, long before the invention of "Palestine" and the "Palestinian" people

"In 1946, the land was NOT Palestinian, it was British..." I think that it the most stupid comment I have seen on the internet. What right do the British have to own land in the middle east? Typical straw man argument to back up Israel

The only problem is that according to the Polish law those so call " owners " should provide original papers and documents of the property ,on which their names or the names of first blood relatives have to appear...If such a documents are not provide or belong to no relatives indicated on those documents the property cannot be return !

Please share your source for your graphic "History of the Holy Land since 1516", specifically the 1948-1967 image that state: "Arab and Palestinian Leaders reject partition plan and Invade." A review of the documents leading up to passage of UN Resolution 181 clearly indicate the Arab leaders, on multiple occasions, did not approve of these plans and requested a hearing before the International Court. Their requests were summarily ignored, therefore, given the lack of Arab consent, as noted in the resolution itself, the resolution is invalid, as is the partition plan, as is the state of Israel. Check the sources of this article, all primary, scanned original documents. http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2010/10/26/the-myth-of-the-u-n-creation-of-israel/

Borders are irrelevant and are never created by the non-elite. Just stop killing people and pushing people off their land. Just because one feels that there was no state of Palestine, that does not mean there was no-one there in the 1st place.

The "Palestinians" were under typical British hegemonic colonization for a very long time. Call the land whatever you want, but the people that lived there, calling themselves Palestinians, because, we wouldn't expect them to call themselves Israelis, even tho they live in Judea/Israel.
They are pawns of the Arab world, used to continue havoc with Israel, a concoction of the West. The British gave the land a new name, there was a coup for control, Jews won, now it's called Israel, again, and if the Palestinians wanted to live there in 1948, they were welcomed. But the neighboring arab states attacked, instead, telling the people to leave and return after they got done finishing Hitler's work. Didn't work out so well, and their neighbors turned out to NOT be so friendly, and let them languish as pawns in a different battle. I feel sorry for them.

I know the point. Jews and Arab bitches fighting for the so called "Holy Land." Wack! There's nothing holy in this world. Not even Mecca!

José J. said...

People talk about Israel without know what they are talking about. Israel is one perhaps the country in the whole world with more legitimacy. The Jews are the native people of Israel and they have been there for 5 tousand years. How many countries in the wotld can say the same?

ALL the countries of North, Cental and South America occupied land from the natives!

In Middle East, with the exception of Israel and Lebanon, all the countries were designed after WWI and WWII from. Iran used to be Persia, an ancient country, but nowadays is dominated by Islam.

Please STUDY, and then blame Israel, if you can:

It is really sad to see the kinds of lies people like you are engulfed in, your assumption of every muslim being is not only extremely ignorant, but outright ridiculous. Im going to guess youre the radical Christian south American type who really knows nothing of his own religion or other religions. You can go on for days about islamic history and the bad and very bad parts of it, but same goes for the Catholic/Christian and Jewis history. These religions are all fake first off, clearly written by man due to its many flaws innacuracies and extremely radical text that explains how society was back inthe ancient times. Example. In the bible it says "thou shall be stoned for lying with the same sex" or some shit like that, to kill someone with rocks for being gay? Sounds like homophobia created by men. Same as racism and sexism, the kind of shit men are afraid of because others are different. Humans are like sheep, they all want to be the same and pick out the different. Its sad, to claim Israel as a peaceful nation is pretty pathetic. I mean how much does it take to realize the Zionist are terrorists and war criminals, theyve always been sick bastards throughout histrory whos purpose is to destroy. This blog is complete propoganda and ridiculously innaccurate jose you have been living in a lie. I feel sorry for you.

Bullshit and poor israel's propaganda everywhere..... da real terrorist in the world.

@José J., you blame islam with that crap? Do you know? even before Islam appears, previous religions have condemned the Jews! written in their each holy books. This proves that the Jews have a bad history, bad behavior. Jews are hated by the people at that time, but I admit, Jews are smart to make propaganda, never give up and genius. Even the British and America be affected by all of you, da real terrorist.

Dude it(Palestinian lands) refers to lands where the people lived thats kind of stupid of you(no offense lol). The British never truly owned these lands since they were only considered occupied lands from the ottoman empire.
It would have been nice to see these guys living together in peace like long ago you know.

Dusty said...

jklahsd32 laksd13 : you are confusing the concepts of sovereignty and residency.

The British had legal sovereignty over the land after the defeat of the Ottoman empire.

It's about time someone told the truth about the "Palestinians". The Arabs didn't want them, so they sent them from their countries to Israel to take up space, & cause Israel trouble, killing two birds with one stone!
